Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) trim is a wood replacement product that’s primarily used for exterior applications such as PVC window trim, PVC door trim, and PVC trim moulding. Its durability, attractiveness, and affordability also make it a popular option for decorative millwork and other exterior accents. PVC trim can be cut and shaped with woodworking tools and custom finished to suit your taste.

Can PVC trim be painted?
Yes. In fact, paint lasts longer on PVC than on wood because PVC doesn’t retain moisture. Ensure PVC trim is clean and dry before painting and use an acrylic latex paint. Some paints are specifically formulated for vinyl products.
Can PVC trim be used indoors?
While PVC trim is most commonly used outdoors, there’s no reason it can’t also be used indoors. It’s sometimes used to finish rooms where moisture is a concern.
How do I clean PVC trim?
The best way to clean PVC trim is with mild soap and water or a dedicated vinyl cleaning product.
Is PVC trim environmentally friendly?
PVC trim is not an eco product, but it is a wood alternative.
